Expanding on our current thermoelectric (Peltier) refrigerated incubators, the SHEL LAB Drosophila units utilize day/night controls along with LED lighting to provide and excellent environment for drosophila culture. The cabinets are designed with a mechanical convection system to ensure a gentle and even air distribution. A programmable day/night temperature limit control ensure a proper and safe environment. The energy saving thermoelectric cooling system provides improved temperature uniformity and up to 78% less power than traditional compressor based models. These units are covered under a two year warranty and are certified to current global safely standards.
PLEASE NOTE: SRI Drosophila Peltier Incubators are manufactured at the time the order is placed. A three week lead time should be expected.

Do the SRI Drosophila Peltier Incubators have internal lights? What kind of lighting is used?
Yes, there are internal lights which activate upon door opening. All Sheldon Manufacturing Peltier-cooled incubators use only low-heat LED lights.
What is the difference between the SRI Drosophila Peltier Incubators and the regular SRI Peltier Cooled Incubators?
There are two key features which the SRI Drosophila Peltier Incubators have which the "standard" SRI Peltier Cooled Incubators do not have:
How does the electricity usage of the SRI Drosophila Peltier Incubators compare to traditional compressor-cooled incubators?
Peltier cooling is much more efficient. Peltier cooled incubators will consume significantly less electricity and produce less waste heat than traditional refrigerated incubators.
How reliable is a peltier-cooled incubator? What is the expected lifespan?
Peltier-cooled incubators generally have somewhat longer lives than traditional, compressor-cooled incubators. The mean time between failure for thermoelectric Peltier cooling plates have been estimated to have between 100,000 and 200,000 hours mean time between failures, which would equate to approximately 11.5 - 23 years of continuous use. Furthermore, the thermoelectric cooling and heating device is easier and less expensive to replace than a compressor, and does not require a refrigeration technician to do so.5578 Sheldon Manufacturing 2017-06-22
